I stayed here on business and it's a great alternative to chain hotels. The room I stayed in was pretty small, but well appointed, in a very European modern way, and even included an i-pad. Unfortunately no video camera so I couldn't face-time kids. Bathroom was really cool also, although the shower was a pretty tight fit to squeeze by the glass door. Beware the limited parking on site, but there is a public parking lot immediately accross from the hotel. Bear in mind, the biggest issue with the Swiss Hotel, is the area. Pretty sketchy area immediately surrounding, but it appears to be in transition, with several brand new condos either finished or underway. Lots of nefarious activity in the adjacent parking lot-so judge yourself accordingly. That said, it's only a couple blocks from the byward market. Overall, I likely wouldn't stay here again, just because I don't want to be looking over my shoulder just going to my car. I had to leave early so didn't get a chance to sample the breakfast, but it sounded pretty good.
